The owner of the Edmonton Oilers says he never realized that threatening to move his NHL team to Seattle would trigger a firestorm of fan anger against him in the Alberta capital.

“There was probably a little too much (bare-knuckled Mark) Messier and not enough (graceful Wayne) Gretzky in the way that we conveyed things,” Daryl Katz said Monday in a radio interview.

“What we didn’t consider was how our supporters or our fans would feel and that was wrong and I apologize for it.”
